LAST WEEK
  • TOP NOTCH: Tighten up at least two of the five Olympic events. - The first event is done!...and I'm almost finished the second.
  • ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: I've decided I do not like the scene where one of my MC's more 'unfortunate' prophecies comes to pass, so that's where I'll be. - I made decent progress, considering how bad that scene really was.
  • NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe more digital audio files, and make a decision on the 'Empire vs The Deli Girls' arc. - Still deciding.
  • (unnamed science fiction series): continue world building - Excellent progress!

THIS WEEK
  • TOP NOTCH: Finish the second Olympic event.
  • ORACLE OF SENTRY RIDGE: Tighten up the next-to-last scene.
  • NEGATIVE ONE: transcribe more digital audio files, and make a decision on the 'Empire vs The Deli Girls' arc.
  • (unnamed science fiction series): continue world building, and create the order of events for the first story.

S!
